I used these ingredients, because it's the same as my mom's recipe. She usually makes it in an electric skillet, but i really wanted to use a slow cooker. Next time I will follow these directions but I didn't think to look the recipe up recipezaar, until after I finished cooking it. Both Ramon and I loved it. I served it with egg noodles.
Very good recipe NickieT63!! The recipe couldn't be any easier to make and the gravy was quite tasty! I used a roasting pan and wrapped the roast in foil (as the recipe stated) as well as using a 3lb. Bone-in Bottom Round Beef Roast (tenderized by poking holes all over roast on both sides with a fork and sprinkling roast with a little meat tenderizer & Course Ground Black Pepper then letting it sit for 45 minutes at room temp). I used Campbells Cream of Mushroom w/Roasted Garlic Soup, 1 pack Lipton Onion Soup Mix, 1 cup water, 1/2 cup of Beef Broth, placed thick Onion slices on top of the roast after pouring the mixture over it and baked 2 hours. The result was very tasty however, parts of the roast were still tough. My roast was pretty thick and the results that other received may have been in part to using a crock pot and letting the roast cook for much longer in the gravy than I did using the roasting pan method. I will definitely use this recipe again because the taste was soooo good, but I will use either my crock pot or a thinner, better cut of beef next time. Thanks NickieT63!
Omygoodness! This was even excellent chuck roast! WOW! I cooked in my slow cooker also! I'm planning to try using cream of chicken and roasted garlic soup just to try the flavor out. Thanks so much!
We make this using round steak and a slow cooker. My DS who doesn't like gravy loves this. Great served with mashed potatoes or egg noodles. Thanks for reminding me of this great stand by will make for dinner this week, mabey i'll take your lead and use a chuck roast. Thanks for posting!
This was a very good roast. I followed the ingredients exactly except I put it in my slow cooker also, put in on low, and cooked for 9 hours.
This is so good. It was the best roast ive made. I threw in some potatoes and baby carrots and cooked it in my slow cooker. Thanks for the great recipe.
